The Home Depot installation teams can get your home ready for the holidays

 

Professional Home Services from The Home Depot

 

With the holidays rapidly approaching, let The Home Depot help you update your home and get you ready for visits from family and friends.  Depending upon your location, The Home Depot can install heating and cooling, flooring, countertops, doors, kitchen cabinet updates, and bath fixtures.  Other services may also be available depending upon your location, including window treatments and shutters, windows, garage doors, water treatment, fencing, insulation and electrical services.

 

In order to have the projects completed before the holidays, you will need to meet various product ordering and installation deadlines.  Listed below are selected projects with notes and deadlines for timely installation.  Use these deadlines as general guidelines and please contact your local store for the most accurate installation time frames.  Allow sufficient time for measuring services and product procurement; take this into consideration when planning your project.  I know from experience that installer dates may fill up quickly so please plan ahead to avoid last minute issues.

 

NOTE: The deadlines listed are for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 24th and Christmas is Sunday, December 25th.  Use the Christmas deadlines for Hanukkah (Wednesday, December 21st), Kwanzaa (Monday, December 26th), and New Years (Sunday, January 1st).

Kitchen Cabinets

 

The Home Depot offers three ways to update your kitchen cabinets: renew, reface, and replace (remodel).  A store associate can help you set up a free in-home estimate for the renewal and refacing programs.  Speak to or schedule a design appointment with a Kitchen Designer at your local store to begin the cabinet replacement (kitchen remodeling) process.

 

NHance Wood Renewal can improve the look of your cabinets by restoring the shine and luster (basic renewal), shifting the color to restore sun faded or yellowed finishes (color shift), or dramatically changing the color (color change).  NHance also offers wood renewal for floors that renews the original shine and luster (basic floor renewal) as well as restoring rougher floors (hammered floor renewal).  This is a free in-home estimate for cabinets as well as floors. The estimate should be completed before the deadline. 


Renewal Deadlines

  • Thanksgiving installation: install purchased by November 4th
  • Christmas installation: install purchased by December 1st

 

Cabinet refacing maintains the profile of your existing kitchen while updating the door fronts, replacing drawers, as well as changing hardware and moulding.  The Cabinet Refacing Design Tool allows you to select components and colors to visualize your finished kitchen.  You can also schedule free in-home consultation. 

 

Refacing Deadlines

  • Christmas installation: install purchased by November 1st

 

A kitchen remodel includes new cabinets and countertops, as well as the possibility of new appliances, flooring, backsplashes, and more.  Our Kitchen Design Center can help you explore the endless possibilities of a new kitchen and estimating your budget.  A site analysis (a small deposit that may be required which will be reimbursed on your installation) will be provided to your Kitchen Designer.  The analysis must be completed and returned to the store before the layout design can be created.  The design process may take several appointments with your designer to achieve your best kitchen layout.  Once a layout has been accepted, the cabinets, hardware, and moulding can be ordered.  Ask your Kitchen Designer for manufacturing lead times.  The products must be received before installation can be scheduled.  The deadline listed is for cabinets only and does not include additional items needed in the kitchen remodel, including countertops and backsplashes, sinks, faucets, appliances, flooring, lighting, plumbing, and painting projects.

 

Replace (Remodel) Deadlines

  • Christmas installation: order cabinets by October 15th and start installation by December 7th
